“Hannaham is never lacking in ambition.” - The New York Times

“The same combination of speed, breadth and complexity that makes [Dorsen] a thrilling conversationalist means any note taker faces a Sisyphean task.” - The Guardian

On the eve of the 2020 election, PEN/Faulkner Award-winner and co-founder of the performance group, Elevator Repair Service, James Hannaham, is joined by MacArthur Fellow and Obie Award-winning artist Annie Dorsen in what promises to be an unforgettable event of provocative ideas and conversation. Hannaham, a writer, monologist, and visual artist, has a vision of America that will reach out, explore and explode with the incomparable Dorsen. Together, the two will algorithmically generate monologues that draw on infamous 20th-century speeches as well as other, earlier writings about astrophysics, astronomy, afro-futurism, black space cults, Melanesian cargo cults, and trash on the moon.
